1984 and Us: Technology’s Grasp

Alright, part 2 here we go. In my last blog about 1984, we talked about the double speak/double think that’s reflected in both the recent presidential election. Maybe it isn’t fair to just focus on the current president, because I’m sure politicians from all walks of life have been guilty of falsehoods since politics became a thing, but I digress.

1984 and Us

A note before I start: I know this is the first time I’ve posted in a week. I want to thank all of you for being here, and for allowing me to take a few days off for the holiday and to celebrate some special anniversaries. We’re back to our regular schedule!

Earlier this year, I was reading an interesting article about how sales of the book 1984 had skyrocketed since the Trump election. While the article didn’t say why this was the case, I had some ideas, so I decided to read it again myself.

Hello, friends! It’s time for another book review! Hooray! Today we’re talking about The Neuromancer by William Gibson.

It might have been longer, actually, because I remember buying my copy at Borders when I was in high school. Let’s all have a moment of silence for the loss of the beloved Borders.

A Life Update

I’m going to make a confession. I am having a really long week and, although I have some blog ideas in the wings, I just can’t commit to sitting down this morning and writing one of them. I do want to get up a blog as I usually do on Friday, so I thought maybe a life update was in order.

the princess saves herself in this one by Amanda Lovelace

I’m breaking a few of my own rules here. This book was not on my to read list as discussed in a previous blog. I put a hold on it at the library and it happened to be available so I went ahead and checked it out, which is breaking another rule where I’m not supposed to put things on hold while I’ve got other things to read. Oh well.

Battle of the Books: Physical vs. Digital

eBooks got pretty big a few years ago, and now everyone is cashing in their 2 cents about whether the physical or digital book is better. Some swear by the ease and speed of eBooks, while some can’t lose the spark of nostalgia and joy they get from holding a story in their hand. Clearly you haven’t read enough blogs just like this one, so here’s my take on the whole thing.
